Teacherarium is a collaboration between Yekaterina Milvidskaia and Tiana Tebelman, eighth grade teachers at Vista Magnet Middle School. The four units they developed help students see math as visual and connected, place concepts like linear equations in familiar contexts, and create an intellectual need to solve systems of equations using substitution. We highly recommend trying their curriculum! Click on the units below or visit their website to learn more >>

The blueprints below are teaching guides that describe how each unit's standards connect to previous and future standards, contain quality problems, and recommends guidance on unit pacing and sequencing. The blueprints are a guide, not a fully developed curriculum.

If you are interested in using a fully developed curriculum we recommend Open-Up Resources, a free and open curriculum developed by Illustrative Mathematics.
